Event description

Description

Before most of us are out of bed, birds are up and singing. They are busily claiming a territory, finding a mate, building a nest, feeding the family and defending their space. David Drummond, wildlife biologist/naturalist will teach this two session, in-depth class about Passiformes or perching birds. He will cover field ID, habitats, range, breeding and behaviors of seven Northwest families of 18 species of the less vocal, but very intriguing behavioral ecology aspects. We will learn about: doves, pigeons, nighthawks, kingfishers, woodpeckers, shrikes, larks, magpies, jays, nutcrackers, crows and ravens with their fascinating natural-cultural history and intelligence. You will have a week between sessions for personal study and field observations at home and can bring your questions and/or photos to class. So, find your binoculars, field guides and come learn more about our feathered neighbors!

David Drummond is a Naturalist-Wildlife Biologist specializing in Ornithology of the region, continent and world. He has conducted in-depth regional field study of passerines, raptors and marine birds, and taught numerous classes on their field ID, bio-ecology and behaviors.
